I have replied to your question in the other support thread you have started. I would suggest to keep the conversation in a single thread so it is easier for both sides to follow.
As I explained there the reason of this behavior is caused of not firing the ItemDataBound event. In order to fire it you need to attach the chart to a DataSource.
All the best,
